Defence Geo Informatics Research Establishment

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has established a new laboratory called Defence Geo Informatics Research Establishment by merging existing labs – the Manali-based Snow and Avalanche Studies Establishment (SASE) and the Delhi-based Defence Terrain Research Establishment. This new lab will focus on researching terrain and avalanches along the borders with China and Pakistan. The merger is a part of the DRDO’s aim to be more result-oriented.
